    With a retail price of up to £1,749, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is one of the most expensive smartphones on the market. But this price tag pales in comparison to a new version of Apple's flagship smartphone, which has been kitted out with a Rolex watch. Designers from Caviar unveiled the luxurious smartphone this week, featuring a yellow gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch, complete with eight diamonds. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone comes with a hefty price tag, and will set buyers back a whopping $135,420 (£117,199).

In fact, since the removal of the Pantone color libraries, users have been forced to pay an additional license before obtaining Pantone colors. A choice that doesn’t suit them is now causing controversy. Additional costs are expected due to having Pantone For now, it’s still possible for designers who subscribe to Creative Cloud All Apps to get free access to Pantone color libraries.

    TOTTENHAM'S new kits for the 2022-23 season have already been leaked online. Spurs traditionally stick with a simple design for their home shirts - with this year's plain white and lacking any pattern, unlike rivals Arsenal. 1 The current strip was initially leaked in March, and now website Footy Headlines have repeated the trick. Both home and away strips have been made available for fans to see. There is not too much different with the home shirt, but it does bear yellow and navy stripes on the collar and the ends of the sleeves - Spurs' traditional away colours. And the away kit's main colour is indeed navy, though the rest of it is very different from what fans will be used to. Tottenham went with a wild colour scheme on this season's away jersey and designers at Nike have again gone with an unusual pattern. The sleeves are black but the chest area will be yellow - and it is fair to say the colours do not really go well together. Most read in Premier LeagueLive BlogUNITED LATEST Kessie...

    “When I step onto the court, I definitely want to stand out. I’m Serena and I like to be different. I like to take risks when it comes to design.” With this philosophy, Serena Williams Design Crew (SWDC) was born, the new design line that will launch on September 1 and that it is the product of the association of the American tennis player with Nike and with 10 young designers.

The tennis player has worked with these 10 designers to create a new era in which trends are created, with a bold and forward-thinking vision. “The world is not one color,” says Serena. “We come from different backgrounds and we think differently.

    By Nneka Chile LAGOS (Reuters) - Weaving contemporary designs into a traditional West African fabric, Nigerian Tsemaye Binitie is creating fashion he hopes can also bridge the gap between luxury and the everyday. His material of choice is Aso-oke, a hand-woven cloth indigenous to the Yoruba people and historically used on special occasions. Binitie, who cut his teeth as a design assistant with Stella McCartney in 2005, began using the fabric in 2017, and he infuses the yellow dresses that are his signature creations with cottons and silks to give them a post-modern feel.  "We started to use contemporary African art and culture within the threads of the collection so you see hints of it or very ... obvious (signs)," said Binitie, who divides his time between Lagos and London. "It's sort of informed fabric, informed colour, informed styling."

    Fortnite creator Epic Games is partnering with carmakers, starting with General Motors, to use its Unreal Engine game development platform to build in-car software in what Epic is calling its “human-machine interface” (HMI) initiative. The first car to use Unreal Engine, which is the primary software toolset with which developers make Fortnite and countless other big-budget video games, will be GMC’s upcoming Hummer EV, set to be unveiled on October 20th. The logic is simple: modern cars are primarily designed using software, and assembled cars carry scores of onboard computers and rely on touchscreens and digital interfaces to power infotainment centers and other sources of information displayed to drivers. And Unreal Engine is a great platform for building software, which Epic thinks makes it a great platform for building the software that goes into cars. “When you sit in the driver’s seat of a modern car today, the way you interact with the vehicle is different from a few years ago. Buttons and screens dominate the dashboard, steering wheel, and instrument pane, providing features that may be new...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — One show that COVID-19 is not canceling is New York Fashion Week. Some of the world’s top designers are showing their work virtually, but a few are still making it happen in person.

    Amazon said Tuesday it is getting into luxury fashion, starting with a collection by the Oscar de la Renta label, whose founder famously dressed first ladies including Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton. Luxury Stores at Amazon will first be offered by invitation only to “eligible” Prime members, the company said. Others who have not been invited can request an invitation to be “added to the wait list,” according to the web site.   Amazon said more designers, including menswear, will be added, but it didn’t mention names. It said the luxury stores will sell “well established” and “sought after emerging luxury brands.” All of the merchandise is sold directly by the designers through shop-in-shops, and are “guaranteed to be authentic,” according to the web site. Luxury fashion designers have been among the last to join the stampede online, with many top brands eschewing e-commerce altogether for fear that it cheapens the exclusivity of its merchandise and the overall shopping experience, industry experts say. Amazon’s fashion offerings have been focused mostly on everyday and affordable apparel. “We are...
